About This Activity

Our week long BOAT CAMP program aboard the F/V Erica Lee seeks to foster nature connection through a maritime lens. We'll explore the maritime heritage and coastal ecology of the Gulf of Maine each day. During the week, we intend to haul lobster traps, tow an otter trawl to collect and examine sea life on the ocean bottom, fish for a variety of sustainable species using a variety of traditional New England methods, explore the Isles of Shoals, tidepools and beaches, sing sea chanteys, play an instrument, tell stories and cool off at the beach. Field naturalist conversations include relevant, age-appropriate topics in marine biology, coastal ecology, oceanography, ocean conservation, maritime history, navigation and knot-tying. No two days on the water are ever the same and every day is different, no matter how many years youth have attended. Note: this program takes place all day onboard theF/V Erica Lee as much as weather and seas permit. We carefully plan our days according to constantly observed weather, tide and sea conditions. Above all else, we focus on keeping youth warm (or cool!), safe and happy. A positive maritime experience is our highest priority and sometimes this means that we aren't able to do all of the activities or visit all of the destinations that we wish to in a particular week. Instead, we adapt and utilize alternate plans to make for the safest, most meaningful day outdoors that we possibly can. We utilize both the Erica Lee and field sites ashore to make the best of New England's changeable weather. Thank you for supporting our desire to be creative in our planning to make for the best possible experience versus holding tight to a rigid set of curriculum and float plans.
